The Essex music fan killed when terrorists stormed a Paris concert hall was remembered at a gig marking the anniversary of the attack.

Eagles of Death Metal performed at Monday’s memorial event, two years after the band headlined the Bataclan when gunmen killed 89 people in the venue, including Weeley man, Nick Alexander.

Singer Jesse Hughes paid tribute to Mr Alexander, who was the band’s merchandise manager.

“It is difficult to not to remember the people who were taken from us like our friend Nick Alexander and so many others,” he said. “We watched people give their lives for their friends and we were able to bear witness to that, and now we have a burden of responsibility to make certain that everyone knows that kind of love exists in this world.”

The band headlined A Peaceful Noise last year – a memorial gig raising funds for the charity set up in Mr Alexander’s name.
